Violet pansies and butterflies oil on textured paper. This is another take on flowers from my garden, albeit butterflies and decor in the background I’ve sketched out from imagination. It was a bit difficult to get all colours display right on screen with just a simple camera, hopefully I’ve got some new photographic equipment. It’ll help, I think :) I painted this on special thick paper for oil painting that resembles canvas texture. I’ve primed it nevertheless with white acrylic before painting, just to get a rougher surface to start with.

This is small painting of violet pansies from my backyard. I’ve made this some time ago, using dry brush and thick impasto layers. At first, I sketched flowers from nature, as they were, but simply copying on sketchbook what I saw in nature didn’t work for composition. To paint this picture, I combined 2-3 sketches :) and that’s the result. Can’t wait to seeĀ  spring again in my garden, it’s been a long winter here.
